I have the new cables and ready to pull them thru .What I need to know is should I lubricate this new cable? I worked on my friends R80 a few years back replacing the throttle cables and the service manual said no lube because it can swell the inner liner and ruin the cable.I'm wondering if this holds true for the K100 clutch cable or if I can hang it and drip oil with moly additive in until it comes out the other end like I do on my other bikes.

Because the cables are Teflon lined (PTFE) they aren't supposed to require lubricant. Some lubricants will cause the liner to break down and lessen the life of your cable.  However I have lubricated mine with a PTFE lubricant for the last 20+ years. I have done 165,000 Km's and only just replaced my throttle cable for the first time. I'm still running my OEM clutch cable, which gets all pivot points and nipples lubed regularly. I have also fitted a grease nipple fitted to the clutch arm. 

When I lubricate my cables I also flush them with the PTFE lubricant and have observed fluid coming out as being contaminated and running black initially. Whether I have extended the life of my cables by using a PTFE is probably open to debate, but I believe so and will continue to lubricate.
Regards Martin.

The K cables have the same BMW lining that can swell if you put lube in them.

YG if you wait till after Friday I'll try and get a definitive answer as to whether it's beneficial to lube a Teflon lined cable with PTFE lubricant. We have an industrial chemist a medical engineer and a ships engineer at the guild and I'll put the question to them.

It's my understanding that it's not actual brand name Teflon but rather a Teflon-like substance used for the cable linings.

YG: You have two cables.  You could always try lubing the one you put in and if that one does get sticky then you could swap in the unlubed one and have the lubed one as an emergency spare.

I have covered over 80,000 miles on my K1100LT in all sorts of weather. All cables are original, never lubed, but certainly greased at the moving pivot points.

That is exactly what I was thinking only in reverse.I am leaning towards putting it in unlubed and if it fails in a short time lube the replacement. I'm just waiting for Martin to come back with his info tomorrow.

I always put a new clutch cable in any bike.

RT has done 60k miles on it since I put it in
K1100 has done 36k miles since I did it.

Never lubed the cable but 3in1 oil lives by the bike and gets put on the nipple every week.

I've come to the conclusion that this cable failure was a direct result of the tank slapper I went into at 70 MPH on the Long Island Expressway after hitting an 8 inch deep 2 foot long and 12 inch wide pot hole that damn near got me killed last month.The cable didn't break at either end it broke 18 inches in up near the front of the tank.The bike violently shook and it's a miracle I didn't go down and get run over by the fool 4 feet behind me wanting to go 80.

Man, Yamaguzzi, that was some pothole you hit!  Bad road maintenance and aggressive drivers can really call into question whether our passion is a rational sport.  I consider myself very fortunate to live in an area with relatively few people.  However, the strong population growth we have experienced recently has also brought a noticeable increase in the problems you cite.  Be very alert if you wish to ever be an old motorcyclist!

While riding in Northern California I too hit a huge pothole.  It bent the front rim. I was lucky that the tire didn't deflate from the blow; I didn't go down.  There was not the slightest hint of the bike going into a tank slapper (it was my K100RS) so you may want to go over the adjustment of the steering stem bearings to be sure they are as they should be. 

I'm glad you came out of that okay.

Missing two of the three so I'll try again on Tuesday. However I had a talk to the ships engineer and his one legged parrot. The general consensus between the two of them was that seeing as though I'm still running on my OEM cable I should continue to lube. The parrot added that liquid PTFE wasn't probably common back then. The engineer actually adds powdered PTFE to his car engine and gearbox and offered to give me some to try. I'm not sure if I want to go that far.

I'm already an "old" motorcyclist ! been riding 54 years and am 70 which is probably a major contributing factor in why I didn't go down when this happened.It was instinctive to hit the gas and hold on hitting this thing  straight on when I saw it . If I would have tried to miss it I wouldn't be here today but hitting the gas kept the stability and made recovering control possible.  The slapper only lasted for a few seconds .Luck played a major role too.The bike came thru fine with the exception of the clutch cable  ( I think ). The thing still tracks straight and handles as it should. I put on around 300 miles since this happened with no signs of anything wrong but the break in the cable . I had it on the highway last Sunday just before the cable let go and she was rock solid at 75mph.

I'm just going to put it together dry and see how it goes Martin. I've got a new spare that I'll carry from now on.

Clutch cables do break but I consider cables to be a wear item and unlubed they seem to have a pretty good useful life and not particularly prone to having an inordinate MTBF. Given the warnings about the lining I don't lube mine. I do lube the ferules at each end however.

Not sure if this adage is used in other countries but in the US we have a saying:

"If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Very Happy

I've never had a clutch cable break.  But I usually replace them when they get all worn and nasty up where they bend through the fork trees.

Though they have an easier life and don't fail as much as clutch cables, I also carry a spare throttle cable.

Reading your description of your pothole encounter, looking at where the damage to the clutch cable occurred and the fact that it only actually failed a little while later leads me to the conclusion that, as the forks compressed violently when you dropped into the hole, the cable was pinched against something hard enough to break several strands of the inner cable (in the same way that you can cut through cable with a hammer and cold chisel). Obviously, this will weaken the whole cable and then it is only a matter of time until, one by one the, other strands start breaking. The amount of damage to the outer cable also suggests that it may have remained deformed and that would have further increased the friction with the inner cable, increasing the load on the cable and exacerbating the eventual failure.

Good recovery though.

Full compression of the forks and a tank slapper probably put the cable in the steering stop which then acted like a wire cutter. 

I'm surprised none of the wiring harness was cut as well.  Have you checked it?

I  caught up with the industrial chemist today and posed the question. He stated do not lubricate PTFE lined cable with any type of oil/lubricant other than PTFE lubricant and especially don't use aerosols on PTFE cables as some types of propellent can damage PTFE. I also asked about the acetone ATF mix as a penetrant and he said it works well. He then went on to explain that the acetone cools down the metal and causes a low pressure area in the thread which draws in the ATF. He did say that some of the later ATF fluids don't mix well and require the addition of a small amount of petrol to get them to mix. I did find a naysayer on the cable lube question, an electrical engineer/ motorcyclist who reckons PTFE cables should last for the life of the bike without lubricating. I'll catch up with the medical engineer next week.
Regards Martin.

Well Martin,All's good with my K again.I put it together dry,lubed the ends with the moly paste ,adjusted everything correctly , and she works beautifully . I snaked it thru using a wire and that also worked well. Went out for a 75 mile test ride on Sunday and the clutch works great and the trans shifts better than it ever has since day one but I'm still in need of a recipe for road kill squirrel so let me know when you find that chef

I nearly had a red squirrel in Scotland. My brakes and road sense were better than it’s! I would have felt a bit guilty though as I didn’t have the beetroot leaves to do it justice on the stove!!

And why is it that English cuisine so often gets slagged?  This is as fancy and gourmet as it gets.   Very Happy

Takes me back to my time in the army.  We had a guy in our platoon from deep in the Ozark mountains in Arkansas. 

For Christmas we were all getting baked goods from home, cookies and brownies.  His mom sent him a couple Mason jars full of pickled squirrel.

Absolutely.  Those little suckers in the jars looked like something from high school biology lab.  You just had to be there to see him chewing the meat off the bones. Rolling Eyes

He told us they taste like woodchuck.
